Charles, I am a huge fan of yours. I had to comment on Bono because we recently visited Ireland and took a tour of Dublin. The guide pointed out all the money and real estate Bono had. As this was a return trip to Ireland (1999) the contrasts were striking. Ireland is once again under extreme economic distress, stores closed, many eastern bloc immigrant working in hotels and service industries. The young of Ireland are once again fleeing for countries that offer opportunities. The Celtic Tiger is dead.
Bono is a hypocrite and should give of his fortune to his fellow countrymen and stop pushing his agenda on us. I love his music as well, but have decided that I no longer will support anyone like Bono.
